I make that statement because it makes sense. I agree with what the Church has said about Jesus because it makes sense, not simply because they have said it.
I have arrived at Catholicism because every other avenue I explored ended up making no sense. And when Catholicism was shown to me,(the true teachings, not that b.s. anti-catholics spout), I was so blown away at how it all hangs together so beautifully.
.....and as you continue on your journey - "God" has introduced you to me.

Sounds like all your questions haven't been answered.

As long as it's your butt that you believe is being saved.
If you thought YOU were the one who was going to burn in hell ... would you still be salivating over the bible???
the Blood has been shed for all, June, and it's up to each individual to personally apply it. i was on the opposite side of Grace/Faith not too long ago and now i'm on the right side of It.

why do you negativly exclude yourself when you could just as easily include yourself?

i'm honestly trying to work with you here, but you have to be just as reasonable and cognitive on the topic of Jesus Christ and Salvation as you do on any other!:)

Keeping the faith means to never show doubt in the dogmas.
Actually, no, that's not what it means. Again, a very protestant view. Besides, no one has shown doubt. Not sure why you keep insisting we have.

We *hope* to be saved. Big difference. Again, you're projecting a protestant evangelical view (osas) onto a Catholic.
Oh, and don't be fooled by those who claim they don't adhere to any religious denomination. That's a denomination in and of itself - it's called Non-Denominationalism.
Please inform me what denomination is the worshiper of PAN...seing it is just a non denominational sect.

...So glad you received the Sacraments. Still doesn't mean you were a practising Catholic though. Nevertheless, if you ever do decide to come home, all you have to do is confess your apostasy and get rid of those crystals and tarot cards.
Your "home" is not my home. IMO - your home is deceitful, egotistical, and uninformed.

So in essence, you can push it out of your mind what you wish to occur.

That is my honesty.

All that means is that you've been baptized into the Catholic Church - not that you are or have ever been a practising Catholic.
Why do you mislead others?
(And, yes, I am fully aware of just how much you care for me. The feeling is mutual.)
SO...Being baptized in the faith means nothing? And all you who claim to be followers just wasted your time, or were actually lying...IOW not true christers?

New Age Spiritual Leader:
This is good to know.
If you do not deny "spirits", then why would you deny the existence of Satan?
Perhaps more likely, you don't care for people using the "devil made me do it", or devil as an excuse for behavior.
As for me, the presence of angels, and saints in physical form has occurred for me as well. So I have no problem understanding your search.
"why would you deny the existence of Satan?"
- because he has never shown "himself" to exist. Lots of people claim this and that is because of "the devil", but I have yet to find in any of my research any actual occurance of the "devil" actually causing anyone to do harm to others or themself intentionally. Which causes me to use logic and then discern, the "devil" is a construct of someone - and more than likely - created to instill fear upon others.

This gent posted his two-cents on the topic:
"Much ado about Satan" - it is worth the read.

and i've seen you use some interesting slurs against them as well!
ain't nothing wrong in my mind with being saved, June, and since Jesus guaranteed it for us through His death and ressurection, there's nothing presumptuous about confidently accepting it!:)
YES!
Then we could all go out and lust after women like you do!---and STILL be saved!
I see works really don't matter huh.

Auld Hornie. After the establishment of Christianity, the heathen deities were degraded by the Church as fallen angels; and PAN, with horns, crooked nose, goat’s beard, pointed ears, and goat’s feet, was transformed to his Satanic majesty, and called Old Horny.
How do you know were you there.

Since we were discussing the Christian faith, my comment would logically refer to a non-denominational Christian. Since the person to whom I was posting didn't question it, I assume it was understood.
Thanks.

I know what you are getting at. What you call extraterrestrials I would call fallen angels. And I don't think we were brought here by them. I do think they taught humans things.
Really?!

Do you think that they may have been the ones who fused our two genes, making us different than apes?

What do you believe they may have taught us?

How about farming and irrigation.
How about writing?
How about measure and mathematics?
How about harmonics?
How about succession of the bloodline?
how about metallurgy?
How about where we came from and the basic science of it?
How about genetics?

Many ancient texts tell us specifically about those teachings...however none of those teachings are in the canons.
I wonder why not.

It means just what I said it does....that he was baptized into the Catholic Church. It does not mean that he went on to practice his faith. He received all the graces from the Sacrament, but it is not an indicator of whether or not he *necessarily* utilized them or cooperated with them.
Thanks.

Wrong again.

I'm not aggravated by your comment. I've long ago, placed the RCC in a box and placed it "on the shelf".

I've moved on to much better things.

Archeology points to a different story, of human-life originating in Africa with the people of the black race.
That just goes to show you really haven't read all that much.
